It's election season once again. Who's getting your vote?
No candidate is perfect, but don't you think a track record of honesty and integrity as well as experience in public office should be basic requirements?
Thanks to a MEGA assignment, I managed to get a head start in the decision-making process a couple months ago, beginning with the female senatoriables. We need more capable women in politics, but it looks like it's slim pickings even with eight vying for those Senate seats. But that's just me.
I do hope every Filipino tries to do a bit of research before May 13. It's best to gather all the information you can get from different credible sources.
Perhaps a starting point can be the feature on the eight women in the running by yours truly and Nante Santamaria in this month's MEGA.
But please don't take our word for it--that's the beauty of democracy. Read print and online news, and make sure to hit the archives. Go through the candidates' platforms. Watch the debates.
Here's hoping we will all make informed choices this time.
